Looking for a rental car in LTN (UK)
Dec 4- dec 9
Need something Automatic and it seems really expensive...
the best 'i got was  170 GBP
Would appreciate any help on this  ;D
this is the cheapest ull get with hertz (actually i just checked again and it went down 3 GBP) . im not familiar with other rental companies.

and the reason that changing the country wont help you is because it only gives the discount if you're renting in america.
G'luck!

its thru hertz argentina, thats what i always use but its all the same in all south america so Chile is the same.

they should not ask u for ID of residents and apparently its legit if the system lets it go thru. i rented 3 times like that and never had an issue.

I have hertz gold so I go straight to the car anyhow I think. No stopping by the counter/agent afaik

The jeep seems so annoying... Removing the hard top doesn't look too hard, but where do I store it?!

i think u got a great deal there!
unless u mean 70 per day the lowest i got by hertz is $86 total

The jeep seems so annoying... Removing the hard top doesn't look too hard, but where do I store it?!
i have no clue - never drove one before - i would go with the convertible mustang personally.
